    When was the last time you told a big lie?

    We’re talking honesty on The Surgery this week, because of a recent report that half of young NEETS (not in employment, education or training) think almost nobody can be trusted online.

    Ever been caught out on a lie? How much guilt does lying give you? How honest are you online?

    We trust YOU to confess how honest you are, online and IRL, right here.

    Join Gemma and Dr Radha at 9pm on Wednesday 25th January to find out if honesty is the best policy.

    Monday! IRL. I have no guilt whatsoever sometimes you have to pretend that you like your boyfriend's mum

    I don't think I've ever lied online.

    I don't tell big porkies but like a lot of people I'm bad for the little white lies like "Yeah, I'm fine", "I had fun at that party" or even "Its nice to see you" :teehee:

    Lying comes as easily as breathing.

    My childhood, my qualifications, my relationships etc. My life is a construction which I alter depending on whom I talk to.

    There's an element of risk that you might slip up, and I have little bursts of worry about people finding out, but these are rare, and I certainly feel no guilt.

    I also tell little white lies on a day to day basis to avoid hassle, I think most people are the same. Sincerity is overrated, no-one really wants 100% honesty.

    Uh, I hardly ever tell big lies. Today's 'big lie' was telling my father, who does not live with me, that I went to school, even though I did not go to school due to my insomnia. If not that, maybe the lie I told my mother like a week ago when she last called: that everything is fine in school (it is not). I chose to say it is fine because she has major heart problems and I did not want to stress her out any more than she already is.

    I do not think either of these is that big a lie, but that is the best I can come up with just for my real life.

    My real life and online persona share a lie. I lie about my dream career to everyone because it is not a career I should be speaking about if I even want a chance to get there, which I believe is completely justifiable.

    As for online, I used to be a bit of a liar when I was 12-13. I claimed I spoke twelve languages, although I only speak two. I stopped when I was 13. This would have to take the cake for the last big lie I told since everything else pales in comparison.
